Maryland’s transportation chief Pete Rahn has reportedly recommended his boss MD Governor Mr. Hogan to approve the Purple line, if the cost is lowered, the Washington Post is reporting.

The low cost proposal would include reducing the number of stations and run the trains less frequently. Supporters of Purple line think these options will impact negatively on the ridership and economic development.

Hogan is reviewing the options, the pros and cons, and will make the decision sometime this month, the Post reported.
